This could be caused by several things.
1) Two adjacent faces may have one more more duplicate vertices.  Try moving the vertices in point-edit more to see if they separate or not. If so you can join them with the Merge Points command.
2) The smooth angle may be too small. Try increasing it in the Mesh Editor.
3) As mentioned before, the face normals might be opposite. If you turn on the Draw As Clay mode in the top toolbad. Orange faces have normals pointing out, blue ones have them pointing in. You can usually align the faces normals by a) Selecting the back facing face and using the Flip Normals command, or 2) selecting the mesh and applying the Fix Normals command.


If you post a sample .an8 project I will take a look at it.

Make a .jpg image that you want for your splash screen. Give it the name splash.jpg and put it in the "images" directory. You can set the images directory in the File->Configure dialog.

You can do this in the Object Editor. Click on the little ruler in the top toolbar to turn on measurements. Then select an object and the dimensions will be shown in all non-perspective views as viewed from that direction.

In point edit mode it will show then length of selected lines and the coordinated of selected points.

Double click on the key points and change them to "corner" instead of "smooth". Then when you position them the path between the keys will be staight line. I've attached an example.
